polls and considered a top contender to a hillary clinton run in 2016. but now a report says some republican fund raisers even some in the new jersey area with considering jumping ship from christie for jeb bush as the former florida governor looks at a bid. jeb is also getting some support from his brother. >> i hope jeb runs. and i think he would be a great president. i have no clue what's on his mind. we'll talk when he's ready. i notice he's moving around the country quite a bit. >> doing well in polls. >> yeah. that's fine. they don't mean anything. for him i can guarantee he's not looking at a poll to decide whether or not he wants to run. it's internal. he's checking his core. as he said publicly, i'm thinking about my family. and he knows full well what a run for the presidency can do on family. after all, he's seen his dad and brother run for president. so jeb, if you need advice, give me a call. >> okay. it is worth noting according to a new quinnipiac university poll, jeb easily leads the rest of the 2016 pack in his home state. that includes marco rubio who i think peo
